We just moved to North Haledon and needed a new beauty salon. We chose Freedom Cuts in North Haledon because it was close, the shop looked nice and the picture of all the haistylists with updated hairstyles encouraged us. From the minute we walked in until the time we left, we did not feel pampered at all. I was barely acknowledged when standing in front of 3 stylists at the desk. My shampoo was short without a scalp massage. No soothing music in the background, just the loud voices of the other stylists having an "open" private discussion. No beverage offered. These are things I am used to and now expect, but can do without if I get a great haicut. After explaining that I just needed a trim for my thick short hair, the professional hair designer quickly cut my hair, blow dried it, only after my request, then announced that she would thin it out with thinning shears. I wondered, at the time, why it took so long to dry my hair and why so much waxy "product" was needed. Now that I've had an oportunity to try to fix my own hair at home, I see why the stylist had so much trouble. One side of my heads hair is longer than the other and is quite noticeable so much so I need to put the longer side around my ear to look even. My hair is so thinned in the back that it looks like it has fallen out in chunks from chemotherapy treatments. The back bottom was left virtually untouched and looks as if I'm trying to grow a mullet. My husband looks like he is related to the coneheads. Not only are we strangers in this town, we now look strange and paid for it.
